I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Shred The Evidence Records artist: The Walk-A-Bout - 20/20 - New release review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, 20/20 from The Walk-A-Bout and it's cool and jazzy. Opening with Victory Parade, a solid pop rocker with tight drums by Drew Bertran and nicely harmonized vocals by Darren Sullivan and Dave Christian who also plays electric guitar. Kevin Anderson on acoustic guitar plays a strong part with a good part of the body  of the instrumentation being his guitar work and Keenan Zach on bass. Date Nut Porridge has a real nice New Orleans funk, emphasized by Bertran and Zach and a super vocal melody by Christian and Sullivan who also plays harmonica and warm Hammond work by Mark Rechler. Very nice. Timeless is one of my favorite tracks on the release with a Latin influenced beat and potent rhythmic percussion by Bertran and strong vocal harmonies by Sullivan and Christian. Very nice. Hero, possibly the top radio track on the release has a strong melody and vocals that could be right from a 70's Spirit release. Christian unleashes his electric guitar on this one and creates a nice flurry. This band has a sound and it's good. Trash Talkin' is a power rocker with grinding guitar tones and great drum riffs. Even Zach lays in a little bass solo rounding out a super rocker. Wrapping the release is Taking It West a melodic ballad with strong vocal harmonies. The track actually reminds me of a Joe Walsh composition. The vocals are tight and smooth and the instrumentation is compact and smart. Solid closer for a solid release.
